Passcode: Viajeras. Género, fuga y frontera en la literatura argentina


Jimena Néspolo    Universidad de Buenos Aires, CONICET Argentina    


The travel narrative written by women is offered as a rich corpus because it allows us to observe the processes of legitimation that underlie Argentina’s literary modernity without obliterating the “sarmientino” civilization/barbarism conflict. In this presentation is analysed a pioneering text, Recuerdos de viaje (1882) by Eduarda Mansilla, in dialogue with other works in order to demonstrate the way in which these writings exceed the standard of their time by plotting a system of fugue/s (fugue from domestic space, escape from the sex-gender system and fugue from oneself in the order of the imaginary).
